Note
  • Imprint from colophon
  • Pocket treatise on Latin grammar and syntax written by the English classical grammarian William Lily, first headmaster of St. Paul's School in London, at the request of John Colet, dean of St Paul's Cathedral, and emended by Erasmus; see Dictionary of national biography
  • In his note to reader, dated III. Calendas Augusti M.D.XV [30 July 1515], in Basel, Erasmus himself acknowledges that he emended Lily's work, written at the request of John Colet. The book was subsequently published anonymously since neither Lily nor Erasmus felt the book should bear either of their names. See Wikipedia article on William Lily for English translation of the passage in Erasmus's note beginning: ".... Eum huius iussu scripserat Gulielmus Lilius, vir vtriusq[ue] literaturae haud vulgariter peritus, & mirus recte institue[n]dae pubis artifex. Absolutum ab illo mihi tradidit immo obstrusit eme[n]dandum...." (leaf A2r-A2v)

LO." of Lorenzo Lorio (see EDIT 16, CNCM 558)
